Hello, I’m Chris! I am a London wedding photographer creating fun images that are filled with character, energy + genuine laughter. My approach is simple: I work with my couples as actual human beings to create images that reflect their personalities – not just an artificial ‘version’ of what you both look like when you’re forced to look a certain way. That means that my work avoids ‘posing’ + instead focuses creating a ‘space’ where you, your friends + families feel that they can continue being themselves in front of camera.

When it came to photography for our wedding, it was probably the first thing I wanted to decide on as it meant so much. Regardless of just wedding photography, the love of this man’s work all round lead me straight to him. Chris Barber. I’ve known Chris for many years, and have continued to be a fan throughout that time. His work is unique to him, recognisable, full of personality (both his and who he’s capturing), creative and very inspiring. So it just had to be Chris to capture our day, truly safe in the knowledge that when we’re old and grey, I’ll still be looking at his images loving the work he produced and honoured that we have him there with us! And mannn did he nail it! Every image captured exactly what we wanted, and more. Having a photographer you trust, for me, is absolutely key. Someone you know that won’t just take some nice looking photos, but will also capture how you felt on the day, the moments as you experienced them. Be able to get across your personality, especially if you’re a tad socially awkward like us pair are! We have cringed a lot looking at posed photos, but Chris just has a knack of making you feel comfortable, even when it’s time for something a little more ‘posed'(strike the pose). Then when it’s time for natural, he captures the real magic. For a geek like me, seeing Chris work, and being part of the end results has been a genuine dream, couldn’t have been happier with that!”
